News from Peter in the BVI.

Peregrine Falcon is enjoying a marvelous few weeks in the BVI before returning to Palma, Mallorca.
We had the pleasure of Mark and Maureen Sanders plus Paul Kettle and Sonya Boggs last week. A great time was had by all with anchorages at Cooper Island, The Baths, Virgin Gorda Sound by Saba Rock and also Leverick Bay, Guana Island, Jost van Dyke Diamond Cay, and Norman Island.
BVI Spring Regatta
This week we entered the BVI Spring Regatta and Jim and Caroline Peterson joined us. We just finished the Round Tortola Race. That is 30 miles plus depending on the tacks etc. We did the race in 3 hours 56 minutes so at least 7.7 knots average at 30 miles. That was the third fastest time in our class. As John Graves would say we are no longer in the microwave class on our Oyster 625 but in the washing machine and dishwasher class – nevertheless a fast cruising boat.
Fun facts – the record for BVI Round Tortola race for a monohull is 3 hours 8 minutes in a TP52 in 2016. Fastest is a kiteboard with a foil at 2 hours 15 minutes and hard to believe is a paddleboard at 7 hours 9 minutes in 2014 ( no idea of the conditions but amazing). We have three more days of racing to look forward to …
Back at Westpoint next week to show off the tan after a glorious few weeks.
